I'd personally want it custom painted at the factory rather than an aftermarket dude doing it. And I've seen some made from the factory, but I think Glock doesn't do it anymore.

I held a spray painted one and that felt pretty good but I do wonder if the glossy ones would be slippery as one

As a safe gun , I think it's cool but , I don't have any "safe-guns" , one's I don't shoot. I know of no finish that will stand the test of time. I'm not against collecting or safe guns , I just live by my budget.

$150 , that's a lot of ammo !

I don't mind a properly duracoated or cerakoted earth tone firearm, but that just looks pimptastic...not for me.

Also not a fan of those slide cut outs. Reminds me of stick on hood louvers.

Color coding by caliber makes sense to me!

As Henry Ford said "You can paint it any color you want as long as it's black."

No thank you.

But....
I have always wanted to take a Glock19 and have a custom slide marked Glock7 and then make it look like it is made out of carbon fibber.

You wouldn't shoot it, would you?

I have NEVER known Glock to paint a frame. No (real) durability in paint or coatings. It'd always BLACK underneath.
